The tall rich grass waved upon the plains where grazed the horses and cattle for which Poitain was famed. Palm trees and orange groves smiled in the sun, and the gorgeous purple and gold and crimson towers of castles and cities reflected the golden light. It was a land of warmth and plenty, of beautiful men and ferocious warriors. —Robert E. Howard, "The Hour of the Dragon"

Poitain is a lush and fertile region, rich in game or natural resources from metal ore to hardwood forests. As such, it has naturally drawn prospectors, miners, and trappers. Also, rich communities of artisans and craftsmen are commonplace here.

Poitain is a proud part of Aquilonia and a land with a strong identity and heritage. Bordered by Zingara, Argos, and Ophir, it has always fought against its jealous neighbors or defended its vast wealth of natural resources though armed conflict. In the past, Ponitain has also resisted the rule of the Aquilonian throne, but this past has been all but forgotten and its loyalty to King Conan is unshakable. Along with Bossonia and Gunderland, it's an important territory of Aquilonia and stands ready to aid in the defense of the realm.

The region is famed for its knights and heavy cavalry, as there is no more awe inspiring sight than ten thousand knights of Poitain riding under the golden leopard banner, such as when King Conan led them at the head of his army in the war against the vile sorcerer Xaltotun. In fact, Poitain was a key part of King Conan's success in recapturing his kingdom and the exploits of that battle, along with the action of those brave knights, has passed into legend.
